Achieving high data transmission rate, energy efficiency and secure connectivity is the demand of many network applications including consumer electronics. To overcome these we propose VLC-UWB hybrid (VUH) network technology which is an asymmetric architecture that utilizes Visible Light Communication (VLC) for down-link, and Ultra-Wide Band (UWB) for up-link transmission. VLC facilitates the great advantage of being able to jointly perform illumination and communication at little extra energy. On the other hand UWB is a low power network technology that operates between 3.1 GHz - 10.6 GHz, utilizing about 1mW for signal transmission. VUH can attain high data rate with minimal energy consumption, within a small indoor coverage area.
